There’s been an item on my PocketMod to-do list for a couple of weeks now that reads, Look up “Ride the Wave, Surf the Web,” which was an ad that I glimpsed on the side of a Puget Sound bus as it hurtled past in the opposite direction on the freeway.
It turns out that if I rode the Sounder commuter rail between Everett and Seattle, or rode the bus between Seattle and Redmond, I too could have enjoyed the benefits of this trial program. The home page says that this is being done in partnership with King County Transit, which currently offers Wi-Fi on some of its buses. Clearly, I have to find out which ones.
Or do I? I mean, the idea of Wi-Fi on a bus is cool, but I use my bus time to catch up on podcasts. Which I could also do with my laptop, I’ll admit, in a much more cumbersome way.
FYI, the regular podcasts that are currently on heavy rotation during my commute are:
…and the highly occasional political podcast Journey to the Center Of.
